Why Shred 2017-12-20T20:47:53+00:00

Why Shred? 

Private information, such as bank statements, business contracts, medical records, strategic documents, etc., are confidential materials produced daily in every business. Business espionage professionals consider trash the single most available source of private information. When this data ends up in a dumpster, it’s easily and legally available to anyone who retrieves it.
Corporate espionage is the fastest growing form of fraud. It threatens a business’ reputation and security, as well as personal credit data.
Protect your business and its future. Trust IDSAutoshred as your confidential source for mobile document destruction.
  • Dunn’s Review estimates that corporate espionage costs US business more than $4 billion in losses annually.
  • The US Department of Justice maintains that an average of 34,000 property crimes—including the theft of confidential material—occur every day.
  • Only 2% of all information crimes are caught and prosecuted. Each crime costs the victimized business an average of $800,000.

IDSAutoshred’s Document Shredding Services will Ensure That You Comply with the Law

Legislation on the federal and state level mandates the secure disposal of consumer data. Compliance with these privacy policies isn’t just good business practice, it’s the law!

  • Disposing of Consumer Report Information – New Rule Tells How
  • The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) of 1999 requires banking and financial institutions across the US to protect the confidentiality and security of consumer data.
  • The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1995 requires that healthcare organizations across the US be responsible for the secure electronic transmission of patient information and the secure storage and disposal of that information.
  • The Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act of 2003 (FACTA) added new sections to the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act, intended primarily to help consumers fight the growing crime of identity theft. Accuracy, privacy, limits on information sharing, and new consumer rights to disclosure are included in FACTA.
